Mean old Cisco
Apologies for the lame "Big Boy" Crudup pun. I spent most of today out and about at meetings, and was offline for a lot of that time. The last press release I saw this morning before I left was the Cisco collaboration salvo, illustrating just the sort of vision which makes last week's Jabber acquisition so intriguing. The first thing I noticed when I got home was that my inbox was flooded with Cisco IOS security alerts - a dozen of them, in fact. I know the company has a policy of batching these on the third Wednesday of each month, but this still seems like a really big concentration. If anyone has any ideas on why this is, and what sort of nastiness has been going on, do let me know.
